depending on how you setup the Matrix it may be actually reducing your ammonia and nitrite, it also, depending on the speed of water flow past the matrix or the oxygen levels amongst the media it may also be reducing your Nitrates.

Leave the pepples, they are a biological filter, by removing them you will be removing your first nutrient exchange cycle. Cubes are for NO3 and PO4 reduction, pepples for NH4 and NO2. The only way the pebbles will remove NO3 is to limit the flow over to less than 200 litres per hour inside a reactor.
